Robin Givhan...she hurtses us. Today, Givhan continues to give Karen Feld a run for the money in the Vapidity Luge by expounding in excruciating detail on the message of Dick Cheney's pink tie. It's always a treat to hear some fool fritter away their lifespan contemplating the hidden messages of political fashion. They never seem to notice that the overarching message sent by Capitol Hill clothing choices is: "SOS! We have been assimilated by the gelatinous khaki bore-hordes! Please tell my wife I love her!"
Our favorite part of Givhan's article, however, is this:
Cheney's pink four-in-hand registered in the manner of pigtails on a gangsta rapper. In the parlance of hip-hop, the look is full of macho swagger and the not-so-subtle suggestion that even with the hairdo of a pre-adolescent girl, the rapper is still the toughest thing standing in the room. The incongruous sartorial flourish is a display of irony and confidence.So...BREAKING: Robin Givhan has purchased a Coolio album.
Frankly, we think the Vice President showed remarkable restraint. Everyone knows that when he really wants to exude toughness, he wears one of his ties that have been dyed by the still warm body fluids of Casey Sheehan.
